In the current world context, the displacement of the human being is a constant. Tourism, commercial relations, academic opportunities, work in transnational organizations, the search for medical treatments and professional updating have promoted the continuous passage of people across borders, without the social, political and public opinion crisis that they produce migrations, whose origin is wars, poverty or political persecution.

At this juncture, the Communication Research Center (CICOM) and PROINNOVA of the UCR organized the forum “La migración en las ciencias: experiencias de movilidad humana en la comunidad científica.”

The forum is expected to be a space to show some of the realities that migration generates in the scientific community, context in which the phenomenon is positive, and, from there, to reflect on the challenges involved in human mobility and cultural diversity in contemporary societies.

The forum will take place on Tuesday, October 2 from 9:00 a.m. at 12:00 p.m. in the Cattecu auditorium in the facilities of the Center for Research and Training in Public Administration (CICAP), located 25 meters to the west and 25 meters south of the Policromía Bookstore in San Pedro de Montes de Oca.

The forum will be on October 2nd, from 9:00am to 12:oopm in the Cattecu auditorium in the facilities of the Research and Training in Public Administration Center (CICAP), located 25 meters west and 25 meters south of the Policromía library in San Pedro de Monte de Oca.
